The Nintendo Wii is a game system that was created by Nintendo in 2006, originally named Revolution. After toying with ideas for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, Warren Spector eventually decided that Epic Mickey would be Wii-exclusive. He cited the reason being that Disney and Nintendo together have reached broad audiences. The Wii is popular with gamers, non-gamers, children, and adults alike, which is fitting for a Mickey Mouse game. Also, the concept of painting and erasing fits well with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Furthermore, Warren enjoys the idea of Mickey, Link, and Mario virtually on the same platform.
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two was also released for Wii, though this time not as an exclusive. It had scaled back graphics, some minor differences, and removed features compared to the other versions.
